With a backpack strapped on her back and a skateboard in hand, a 28-year-old woman went to a local Florida high school. However, she did not quite fit in.
According to CBS News Miami, the woman named Audrey Nicole Francisquini was dressed as a student but stood out because she handed out flyers promoting her Instagram account to students.

On Monday, Francisquini walked into American Senior High School in Miami, where she filmed herself on her phone as she wandered around the school.
She was asking students to follow her on social media, police said.
Actual teenage students at American Senior High School felt that the woman was suspicious so they contacted school security.
After being confronted by a security officer, Francisquini said that she was a student who was looking for the registration office, CBS Miami reports.
The wannabe-influencer continued on her quest to get more followers by continuing to walk around the High School’s campus and trying to talk to more students. She even blocked some from entering their classrooms.
School administration was reportedly advised of a “potential threat on campus,” but Francisquini managed to eluded both security and administrators.
Francisquini escaped their scrutiny by leaving through a side door of the school which opened up to a faculty parking lot.
Her freedom was short lived, however, because investigators were able to access her Instagram account, determine her location, and ultimately arrest the alleged intruder.
She was charged with burglary, interference with an educational institution, and resisting an officer without violence.
CBS News spoke with a Miami-Dade County Public Schools spokesperson who characterized the incident as “unfortunate,” adding that a “thorough review of this matter is underway.”

“As always, Miami-Dade County Public Schools will continue to work tirelessly to protect the safety and wellbeing of our students and employees,” the spokesperson told the outlet.
We wonder if this stunt will help or hinder Audrey Nicole Francisquini. Some say, “all publicity is good publicity,” but it’s likely most will find the woman’s behavior just plain creepy.
